In a notice dated April 22, the nation’s oldest cryptocurrency exchange told its customers to withdraw all of their remaining funds from the platform, which had already suspended most of its operations – including the ability to trade between cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies like the Romanian leu – earlier this year.

The notice said:
“We inform you that starting from 1st of May 2018, our platform will be closed. Operations stopped back on 1st of February but you still could stock your bitcoins on our platform.”
Max Nicula, who is the chief executive of BTCxChange, said earlier this year that the startup’s bank accounts had been shut down, and it would no longer be able to process fiat trades, Cryptoninjas reported.
